Myth Busters

Myth

Coronavirus vaccines were developed too fast to be safe.

Fact

Coronavirus vaccines are safe. The coronavirus vaccines that are now being deployed have undergone strict and rigorous clinical trials involving thousands of human participants.

Myth

Coronavirus vaccines alter DNA. 

Fact

COVID-19 mRNA vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA in any way. The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines contain messenger RNA (mRNA) that does not enter the part of the cell where your DNA is located. The mRNA instructs our cells how to make a protein that triggers an immune response. This builds immunity against the virus that causes COVID-19.

Myth

Coronavirus vaccines affect fertility.

Fact

People who are trying to become pregnant now or who plan to try in the future may receive the coronavirus vaccine. We are still learning about vaccine and pregnancy, but currently there is no indication that vaccination will cause a problem with pregnancy.

Myth

I don’t need the vaccine because I’ve already had COVID-19. 

Fact

Even if you’ve had COVID-19 you should get the vaccine. While a previous coronavirus infection might provide people with antibodies against reinfection, experts are not yet sure how long this protection lasts.

Myth

You can get the coronavirus from the vaccine. 

Fact

You can’t get COVID-19 from the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna coronavirus vaccines because they do not contain live virus.

Myth

If you had the vaccine you don’t need to wear a mask. 

Fact

If you are immunized against COVID-19, there is a small chance you could pass the virus on the others.

Myth

The vaccine has a microchip to control the general population. 

Fact

There is no vaccine microchip, and the vaccine will not track.
